It’s raining bridal couture here at Aisle Perfect. Next up from our fashion week goody bag is the latest collection by British designer Jenny Packham. Inspired by the Belle Époque era of the early 20th Century, Ms. Packham’s 2014 collection is soft and feminine to T. Her dresses always do a woman’s body right and it is no surprise that she remains a celebrity favorite to this day.
From Jenny Packham:
The Belle Epoque or ‘beautiful era’ transformed fashion, abandoning restrictive corsetry and creating the flowing silhouette ever since associated with the Age of Elegance.
Intricate, light beading, delicate embellishment and clean, understated silhouettes play homage to an Edwardian inspiration, whilst romantically voluminous ballerina skirts, graceful tulle sleeves and elegantly exposed backs bring to mind a very modern bride, evoking scenes of a chic European destination wedding. Available in ivory, champagne and magnolia, luxurious silk mikado, sumptuous draped chiffon and exquisite French lace are adorned with delicate silk flowers and twinkling crystals in a spectrum of antique metallic silvers and champagnes.
